Detroit-bred, Los Angeles-based musician Alex Winston has unveiled a fantastical new video for her single "Tourist," premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Nov. 28).
The clip opens with Winston paying tribute to the listening days of old, placing a tape into a cassette player. The retro vibe is perhaps a brief nod to the theme for the rest of the video: 1999 romance/comedy/thriller movie Drop Dead Gorgeous. The cult film stars the likes of Kirsten Dunst, Denise Richards, Allison Janney and Amy Adams, and centers around a rapidly devolving beauty pageant.
Winston's video intertwines shots of her dancing and jamming her way around the suburbs of L.A. with fantasies of herself as a pageant contestant parading around in patriotic headgear and clothing. The latter is a recreated scene from the film, replacing "This Land is Your Land" with her original song.
